    Default Sheep Hunters driving the Haul Rd

    You guys heading up the Dalton highway the next few days... take it easy. Sounds like rough traveling with snow on the road today (7th)

    The Brooks Range guys better bring their warm gear.

    Default That can't be good.

    Glad I'm heading to a different range this year. Be safe all.

    That sounds terrible. Guess I better reevaluate my gear list to make sure I included enough warm clothes!

    I was there in '09 too and that was miserable. I planned on heading up there again this year, but we have decided that plan B is a better option. The Brooks can be nasty this time of the year...I guess any time of the year.

    Heading up tomorrow so we'll see what things are in store. Guess that puffy gear isn't just for siwash now.
